Cyberpunk 2077 Mod Gives Night City an Even More HD Makeover

Yeah, cyberpunk 2077 it’s already in HD—goes well beyond HD for anyone playing in 2K or 4K, even—but if you’ve ever stopped to look at the floor and wall textures in the game, you may have noticed that they aren’t as sharp as some of the most striking parts. of the world.

That’s to be expected, of course, no developer in their right mind would spend as much time on a piece of land as they do in the character’s apartment or car. But when a certain type of game reaches a certain level of popularity, there are people who want to see what it looks like, cost be damned.

You may not remember but in 2020 I wrote about a witcher 3 project made by HalkHogana modder who wanted to give Geralt’s world a makeover, replacing the game’s default environment textures with new ones that were vastly more detailed. That mod proved to be so good and so successful that the developers at CD Projekt Red included it in their recent next-gen relaunch of the witcher 3.

Good Halk Hogan now he is back with almost the same for CDPR tracking, cyberpunk 2077announcing that his HD Reworked Project he is now up and running and is posting a video showing some of his work.

Cyberpunk 2077 HD Reworked Project – Launch Preview

While adding something like this to the game is to be expected to take a performance hit, HalkHogan says that as long as you have enough VRAM to spare, you won’t notice or slow down at all. And if you dois releasing two versions of the mod:

In general, the modification does not affect performance in any way if you have a sufficient amount of VRAM (video card memory). Even if you run out of memory a bit, it shouldn’t be a problem (and if it is, you can always easily uninstall the mod).

There are two versions of the mod, tailored to whatever graphics card you have.

Cyberpunk 2077 HD Reworked Project Ultra Quality: contains the highest quality textures and provides the best visual experience. Highly recommended for 2K/4K displays. The game can use up to a maximum of 800MB more VRAM, so most modern graphics cards should handle it easily.

Cyberpunk 2077 HD Reworked Project Balanced: maintains high texture quality with lower VRAM usage. Recommended for graphics cards with less memory. The game can only use around 400MB more of VRAM, so basically everyone who can game comfortably can use this without experiencing significant performance drops and having noticeably better textures.

Version 1.0 of the project is now available on Nexus Mods.
